Phoenix Society for Burn Survivors® is the leading national nonprofit organization dedicated to empowering anyone affected by a burn injury through peer support, education, and advocacy.
Since 1977, the Phoenix Society has partnered with survivors, families, health care professionals, burn centers, and the fire industry to support recovery, improve the quality of burn care, and prevent burn injury.
Based in Grand Rapids, Michigan the Society is committed to advancing recovery resources, providing environments to renew the spirit, and to supporting a positive return to life.
